    Beba, we loved you so much. It is impossible to imagine our world without you.

    I wish I could go back and tell you about how important you where to shaping my life. All of my great family memories revolve around you and Pipi cooking and laughing and taking care of all of us throughout the years.

    You were selfless and loving in every way. I am so heartbroken that I will never be able to kiss you and hug you again. But I am grateful that I was able to speak with you one last time.

    I will keep your memory alive by telling my kids about how special you were to all of us and how we can all learn to love and care for each other the way that you always did for anyone that came into your life.
    Te quiero mucho mi amor. (Chino)

    I had the best childhood and so many wonderful memories that are all surrounded by my abuela Beba and my abuelo Pipi. From snowball fights, swimming, riding bikes to the deli, renting dropped dead Fred for the 1000th time, getting abuela to make Quake-oatmeal, arroz con leche and Natilla to the croquetas that her and Pipí have my David addicted to. They made sure we were all happy and were always there for us. So many wonderful memories with my cousins who are like my sisters and brothers that I’m thankful for and will cherish. I’m grateful and blessed that my boys got to experience what an amazing great grandmother she was and I know they will remember what a beautiful soul she was. Abuela you will be truly missed, we are all devastated but at the same time glad that you are at peace. I will treasure all the memories and your big loving personality. Te quiero mi preciosa ❤️😭🙏🏻😇we will take care of abuelo. Until we meet again.

    Beba, I will never forget you. You have been a grandmother to me since I was 17 years old. I have learned and watched others grow in your presence. Your love and compassion for others has humbled me in so many ways. It’s so hard to let you go but I know you’re in a better place. You will forever be in our hearts and soul. I love you abuela beba

    Mi abuela was my 2nd mom, she and my abuelo gave me the best childhood a kid could ever ask for. She raised all 8 of us grandchildren together and all of us were not cousins but rather brothers and sisters. I’d spend my summer vacations begging my parents to let me stay over Abuela and Abuelo’s house where my cousins and I would spend hours swimming in the pool, playing Marco Polo and making the most epic whirlpools ever! We’d ride our bikes down to the corner deli, come back play video games, and eat the delicious food she’d always love to prepare for us. She loved making her sweets- natilla, arroz con leche and she knew I loved to eat it hot so she’s always save the pot for me. She left us much too quickly. Thank you abuela for leaving such an impact on all on our lives. You were a beautiful soul and I hope to be half the selfless, giving woman you were. Rest In Peace my viejita linda. I know that you will be with us always, our new angel. Te amo con todo mi corazón, hasta que nos vemos en el cielo.

    To my second mommy my heart aches because I can’t talk on the phone and tell you I love you, thank you for sharing and caring for me and Danielle and Nicole you will be missed! Xoxoxo

    To my beautiful mother. There are no words big enough. There are no hugs strong enough. There is not a smile wide enough. All I can offer is my heart, and you are my hero. For the first time in my life I have a beautiful smile, because I know you are not going to be suffering anymore, and you are with God, and his Son (Jesus Christ). Thank you for all you did in my life from raising me as a baby to the man I am today, and for that I am very grateful to you and Pipi.
    The way you were so kind hearted to all whom came into your life, as well as all the family members that needed you while you were here with us.
    The LORD is close to the brokenhearted; he rescues those whose spirits are crushed. (Psalm 34:18).
    Give all your worries and cares to GOD, for he cares about you. (Peter 5:7).
    Bueno mi niña linda as ta que nos veamos en el Cielo otra ves. Tu Hijo Rosendo.

    My dearest Bebi, words cannot describe the most wonderful person I’ve ever known, actually I consider you as my 2nd mother. You were always so cheerful and kind hearted, and nothing was ever hard or impossible. In fact you were my role model. I have great memories of you past and present. I am very grateful to have been part of this wonderful family that you and pipi raised together. Thank you for being patient and loving with me. I will always treasure your warm smile and your funny sense of humor. I will greatly miss you, but I know that some day we will meet again my love. Therefore, be patient and wait for me. I will keep you close to my heart and soul. I love you. Your daughter Ileana.
    He has sent me to heal the broken hearted. Luke 4:18.

    A mi madre que me dio esta vida te voy extrañar muchísimo. Mi corazón está partido y seguiría partido hasta día que volvemos encontrar. Voy extrañar esa sonrisa tuyo y esa madre buena que eras. Que dios te guíe en tu nueva adventura con el. Tu hijo que nunca te olvidará tu Agustinsito.

  14. Mercy Sardinas Nov 13, 2019 at 6:05 pm

    Mamita Beba, Im heartbroken but I know where you are. I know that you’re with Jesus with a new body that does not hurt looking down on us. I want to thank you for everything you taught me since I was 17, how to cook, iron, wash clothes, all these things I learned from you. I don’t know what I’m gonna do without you because I’m going to miss you so much. You were such a role model of a woman, wife, mother and grandmother. I loved you and love you still so so much. We will see each other one day gathered in heaven. Love you Mechy.

  15. Karen and Joe Slocum Nov 14, 2019 at 6:29 pm

    Our hearts and prayers are with you all at this time. Beba was the most beautiful kind heart hearted woman who we loved dearly. We pray for you all for strength and guidance as you celebrate Her wonderful life. Beba is now your very special angel. Gods going to open those gates soo wide for Her as she was such a great caring woman. God Bless you All.🙏🏼

  16. Monica Valenzuela Nov 14, 2019 at 6:41 pm

    Beba, You were everyone’s grandmother/mother at some point. I’m blessed to have known you and join your family. You loved everyone unconditionally and never asked for anything in return. I’m heartbroken that my boys will not remember your laugh or smile. You will truly be missed more than you could ever know. May your memory live on with all of us remembering to love a little more, and asking for nothing in return.

    My favorite poem for my beautiful mother.

    If Roses grow in Heaven

    If Roses grow in Heaven
    Lord, please pick a bunch for me.
    Place them in my Mother’s arms
    and tell her they’re from me.

    Tell her that I love her and miss her,
    and when she turns to smile,
    place a kiss upon her cheek
    and hold her for awhile.

    Because remembering her is easy,
    I do it every day,
    but there’s an ache within my heart
    that will never go away.
